Thanks to a new update, finding some peace and quiet from the countless Microsoft Teams channels and chats that plague your workday should soon be a little easier.
The company confirmed that it is working on new features for its video conferencing service that will allow users to hide common channels and “focus on the channels that matter most to you.”
This feature, which is already available in other channels, is sure to help improve productivity for Microsoft Teams users everywhere, and is expected to reduce unhelpful or confusing notifications and pings.
Hide common Microsoft Teams channels
Currently listed as “in development” on the official Microsoft 365 roadmap, the feature is expected to be released sometime in February 2024. That means users don't expect to have to wait that long to silence frustrating public channels.
Once released, it will be available to Windows, Mac, and Web users, as well as mobile users on Android and iOS, and will be available across multiple cloud instances as well as general availability users.
This news is the latest tweak to Microsoft Teams in recent weeks that focuses on making the service less intrusive and more intuitive for users.
The platform recently announced another update that allows users to manage calendar notifications directly within their Microsoft Teams activity feed. This means there won't be a bit of a scramble between apps and services to get rid of annoying pop-ups and alerts.
The platform also recently revealed that it is rolling out the ability to transfer messages between Microsoft Teams chats with just a click, saving time for users looking to communicate important notes and alerts.
In addition to this, new Windows 11 builds will add Microsoft Teams Reminders to the Recommended section of the Start menu. This means alerts for video conference calls are more visible and you'll never miss or forget a meeting again.
